Collard Pastrami Wraps

This meal was inspired by several things: 1) My obsession with reuben sandwiches, 2) this amazing post a friend of mine shared: The Un-deli: 10 Over-the-Top Breadless Sandwiches, 3) The fact that I cannot commit to buying Thousand Island dressing, 4) I don’t really do gluten-free bread, and last 4) The store was out of corned beef (what?), so pastrami.

And now…I’m kind of becoming obsessed with different wrap options…large collard green leaves have got to be the easiest wrap ever, not to mention, nutrient powerhouse. Fill them with whatever you want!

Collard Pastrami Wraps

  • 1 collard green
  • Sir Kensington’s sriracha mayo
  • Pastrami
  • TJs raw sauerkraut
  • Diced red onion
  • 1 thinly sliced kosher dill pickle

Wash collard leaf and pat dry, then layer the remaining ingredients in the order above on the leaf. Wrap and eat.

Holy shizz! I made a second, and therefore probably had about 5,000% of my daily value of vitamins K and A, oh!IMG_7130[1]IMG_7132[1]

Smoked Pork and Pickle Salad

I love pickles, could eat them all day. Seth hates them and won’t let me near him for pickle kisses.

It’s still been kind of warm/muggy (for San Diego) lately, which is when I crave salads the most. Last night I just wasn’t feeling my usual all veggie filled salad, so I used random things in my fridge, and I loved my salad!

Smoked Pork and Pickle Salad

  • Butter lettuce
  • Diced red onion
  • Cut up smoked pork (we have a ton from our inaugural smoking)
  • Grilled garlic (also leftover from a big batch I put on the grill)
  • Fresh pickles
  • Tessemae’s Zesty Ranch dressing
  • Sprinkle salt/pepp
